Custom Building Gaming Question

I had this for few months now, but I recently bought PC games like Overlord, Oblivion, World of Warcraft, let me explain, I have NO knowledge or experience about how things work, I don't want to melt or overheat my Computer and explode it, I do want to enjoy the Computer with good result, and good gaming. I am hardcore gamer- I play a lot of videogames, But not a lot of PC games, Since I was stuck with Dell-dimension 4400 for 7 years! Yes, I know I could upgrade it, but I knew the limit of that thing, It wasn't worth the trouble. I had to wait until I finally collect all of the parts I need, and finally built it. I had someone help me putting together the parts.

I am wondering if you think these what parts I list below here, is good enough, or should add or remove or upgrade, so that I can make sure it will live for long time, and plays decent games without killing the Computer itself.

I will list my System-What Parts I bought,

List What Parts I bought and installed***

Case:Dynex DX-500CC ATX Mid Tower Comes with 500 Watt Power Supply ATX12VTri-Color 500 Watt power supply And it also comes with a blue lightcolor case fan- But I don't know the name of that fan, (The Case looklike X mark on the left side of case see-through, it also had lock-upfront door***)

Thats all there is installed* inside*

I Know I already post comment about this in other title- but I wanted to make sure someone see this message. I know I am crazy lately, blame my Computer! Haha... Ok Thank you, I appreciate the help!

I d like to hear your thoughts, suggestions and anything.

    Thank you Jonb3838 (Jonb3838- Yeah, I agree, that was reason why I
    selected those part, because I have seen good reviews about them, and
    they are my first time owning them, so I will soon see how and what
    they are capable of when I finally get my new Monitor and install the
    last few part.) ^-^

    And Rtrahan, (Rtrahan, I see, this probably related to CPU fan Maybe
    the Cpu Fan was set as low speed in order to prevert it from
    overheating since it didn't have any Heatsink installed, That would
    make sense why it shows that Dont you think? Could be wrong but
    anyways, So I guess I will have to order other 2 Gigs then. I guess the
    rest the parts/case are good, Ok, Thank you for being so kind and heres
    big cookie as for your reward!!) (5rating! Haha)

    As for Umm blueextc3221 whatever- Yes I am aware of that, Its same thing if you asked question when someone answer you, and you have to "Fix" it for someone- if someone asked and they will HAVE TO fix it by "Solve it themseleves by see if your suggestion WORKS!" That idea applys the same thing, I would think. (Look at my CPU fan fails or speed is too low that I post* this is related,) (So I had to ask to make sure that I didn't install them wrong or use the wrong part this is what I asked!)

There are three areas to concentrate on for a gaming PC. Memory, Video Card, and lots of venting to keep it cool. The CPU is good but should have a fan and a hotsink to keep it cool. You need 2 more gigs of RAM. Ensure the video card is in pci express slot. Otherwise it looks good.

Im building a computer in school and the speaker that runs during POST connector but i have no ihad (nor my teacher) as to where it goes on my asus M68MT-S2P diagrams or pictures would help . thanks

Hi there,


Sir you posted a ASUS M68MT-S2P, there is no such model, the image above is a Gigabyte M68MT-S2P. all you have to do is plug your system speaker and follow the polarity.
The system reports system startup status by issuing a beep code. One single short beep will be heard if no problem is detected at system startup. If a problem is detected, the BIOS may issue beeps in different patterns to indicate the problem.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

A Power supply that fits in a cooler master case

You could use the following (mind, I tend to go for the 750-1k watt powersupplies since I tend to be a bit of a hardware fanatic- and want more than enough power to run my gear. )
Check a site like (here's a sample search:

The brands I prefer are Corsair, Antec, Zalman, and Coolermaster. You can go cheaper, but I do not recommend skimping on your powersupply. It is the *number one* source of pc headaches when you are building a system. Get the best your money can afford- you will be happier in the long run. Also, don't go under 700 watts- most gaming rigs can draw that much as a minimum- and the more wattage = the more room to expand and upgrade down the road.

Gladiator Gaming case replacement front USB chip?

Here you go - the whole case will be cheaper than the controls

79.00 for the entire case is the cheapest way to go as they do not sell the control and that is why the number didn't bring anything - it would be 100,00 most likely - so your getting a deal here.

Here are some more pictures - and the case is sold out here but the pictures are many - so you know what it is - also reading the reviews - I want one of these cases now.

Continuation to 'help no power' question?

It's not a short in that sense. It's just preventing thee motherboard from starting. I had the same issue a long time ago when building a pc. Once it's seated properly, it should turn on...unless like I said previously, there is something wrong with motherboard all together.

Help no power

This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).
